Through your publication, I wish to thank the citizens of Legislative District 6 for the opportunity to run for the Senate seat and for the 19 years of appointive and elective public service. From the planning and zoning commission of Coconino County, the school board in Tuba City, the Coconino County Board of Supervisors and the Arizona House of Representatives, I have truly enjoyed the development of public policy, and the personal benefit of learning so much about Arizona. Honestly, the sacrifice has never exceeded the thrill. I have loved it.
This last campaign for Senate was truly the most fun. I learned so much: water issues in the Verde Valley, higher education issues in rural Arizona in Payson and fundamental education funding issues throughout Arizona. I learned so much.
So, gratitude is mine to give. Thank you.
Rep. Tom Chabin
